OSHA’s web page includes information about the NRTL Program (see http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of Final Decision OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of recognition of FM Approvals, LLC, as a NRTL. FM’s expansion covers the addition of 24 test standards to its scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of a NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements specified by 29 CFR 1910.7. Recognition is an acknowledgment that the organization can perform independent safety testing and certification of the specific products covered within its scope of recognition and is not a delegation or grant of government authority. As a result of recognition, employers may use products properly approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require testing and certification of the products. The agency processes applications by a NRTL for initial recognition, or for expansion or renewal of this recognition, following requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires that the agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the application and provides a preliminary finding and, in the second notice, the agency provides the final decision on the application. These notices set forth the NRTL’s scope of recognition or modifications of that scope. OSHA maintains an informational web page for each NRTL that details its scope of recognition. These pages are available PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 from the agency’s website at http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html. FM submitted an application, dated July 15, 2016, (OSHA–2007–0041–0008) to expand its recognition to include 28 additional test standards. OSHA staff performed a detailed analysis of the application packet and reviewed other pertinent information. In reviewing the application, OSHA determined that three of the requested standards had been withdrawn by the controlling standards development organization; therefore, OSHA cannot add those three standards to FM’s NRTL scope of recognition. Additionally, one of the requested standards, ISA 60079–26, has been superseded by UL 60079–26, which was also included in FM’s expansion application. Accordingly, OSHA will add the active standard, not the superseded one, and OSHA will grant recognition to 24 standards in the final expansion. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews in relation to this application. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing FM’s expansion application in the Federal Register on May 15, 2018, (83 FR 22523). The agency requested comments by May 30, 2018, but it received no comments in response to this notice. OSHA is now proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of FM’s scope of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to FM’s application, go to http:// www.regulations.gov or contact the Docket Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Room N–3653, Washington, DC 20210. Docket No. OSHA–2007–0041 contains all materials in the record concerning FM’s recognition. II. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined FM’s expansion application, capability to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent information. Based on a review of this evidence, OSHA finds that FM meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of recognition, subject to the specified limitation and conditions listed below. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant FM’s scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of FM’s recognition to testing and certification of products for demonstration of conformance to the test standards listed below in Table 1.

OSHA’s recognition of any NRTL for a particular test standard is limited to equipment or materials for which OSHA standards require third-party testing and certification before using them in the workplace. Consequently, if a test standard also covers any products for which OSHA does not require such testing and certification, a NRTL’s scope of recognition does not include these products. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) may approve the test standards listed above as American National Standards. However, for convenience, the use of the designation of the standards developing organization for the standard as opposed to the ANSI designation may occur. Under the NRTL Program’s policy (see OSHA Instruction CPL 1–0.3, Appendix C, paragraph XIV), any NRTL VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:22 Sep 27, 2018 Jkt 244001 recognized for a particular test standard may use either the proprietary version of the test standard or the ANSI version of that standard. Contact ANSI to determine whether a test standard is currently ANSI-approved. A. Conditions In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, FM must abide by the following conditions of the recognition: 1. FM must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major change in its operations as a NRTL, and provide details of the change(s); 2. FM must meet all the terms of recognition and comply with all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3. FM must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, including all previously published conditions on FM’s scope of recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition. Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby expands the scope of recognition of FM, subject to the limitation and conditions specified above. Authority and Signature Loren Sweatt, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, authorized the preparation of this notice. Accordingly, the Agency is issuing this notice pursuant to 29 U.S.C. 657(g)(2), Secretary of Labor’s Order No. 1–2012 (77 FR 3912, Jan. 25, 2012), and 29 CFR 1910.7.

UL submitted an application, dated May 31, 2017, (OSHA–2009–0025–0020) to expand its recognition to include 26 additional test standards. This application was updated on November 1, 2017, (OSHA–2009–0025–0021) to include an additional standard, for a total of 27 standards. OSHA determined that one of the standards requested in UL’s application, UL 2703, ‘‘Standard for Mounting System, Mounting Devices, Clamping/Retention Devices, and Ground Lugs for Use with Flat-Plate Photovoltaic Modules and Panels,’’ does not meet the requirements for an appropriate test standard in 29 CFR 1910.7; indeed, this standard is not included on the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards. The types of products covered by UL 2703 do not fit into any of the categories covered by OSHA’s NRTL Program. Specifically, the standard covers mechanical products, while OSHA’s NRTL Program addresses mainly electrical end products. Accordingly, OSHA declines to add UL 2703 to the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards and rejects UL’s application to add the standard to its scope of recognition.

includes information about the NRTL Program (see http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Notice of Final Decision

    OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of 
recognition of FM Approvals, LLC, as a NRTL. FM's expansion covers the 
addition of 24 test standards to its scope of recognition.
    OSHA recognition of a NRTL signifies that the organization meets 
the requirements specified by 29 CFR 1910.7. Recognition is an 
acknowledgment that the organization can perform independent safety 
testing and certification of the specific products covered within its 
scope of recognition and is not a delegation or grant of government 
authority. As a result of recognition, employers may use products 
properly approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require 
testing and certification of the products.
    The agency processes applications by a NRTL for initial 
recognition, or for expansion or renewal of this recognition, following 
requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires 
that the agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in 
processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the 
application and provides a preliminary finding and, in the second 
notice, the agency provides the final decision on the application. 
These notices set forth the NRTL's scope of recognition or 
modifications of that scope. OSHA maintains an informational web page 
for each NRTL that details its scope of recognition. These pages are 
available from the agency's website at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
    FM submitted an application, dated July 15, 2016, (OSHA-2007-0041-
0008) to expand its recognition to include 28 additional test 
standards. OSHA staff performed a detailed analysis of the application 
packet and reviewed other pertinent information. In reviewing the 
application, OSHA determined that three of the requested standards had 
been withdrawn by the controlling standards development organization; 
therefore, OSHA cannot add those three standards to FM's NRTL scope of 
recognition. Additionally, one of the requested standards, ISA 60079-
26, has been superseded by UL 60079-26, which was also included in FM's 
expansion application. Accordingly, OSHA will add the active standard, 
not the superseded one, and OSHA will grant recognition to 24 standards 
in the final expansion. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews in 
relation to this application.
    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing FM's expansion 
application in the Federal Register on May 15, 2018, (83 FR 22523). The 
agency requested comments by May 30, 2018, but it received no comments 
in response to this notice. OSHA is now proceeding with this final 
notice to grant expansion of FM's scope of recognition.
    To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to 
FM's application, go to http://www.regulations.gov or contact the 
Docket Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. 
Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Room N-3653, 
Washington, DC 20210. Docket No. OSHA-2007-0041 contains all materials 
in the record concerning FM's recognition.

II. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA staff examined FM's expansion application, capability to meet 
the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent 
information. Based on a review of this evidence, OSHA finds that FM 
meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of recognition, 
subject to the specified limitation and conditions listed below. OSHA, 
therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant FM's scope of 
recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of FM's recognition to testing 
and certification of products for demonstration of conformance to the 
test standards listed below in Table 1.

* Represents a standard that OSHA proposes to add to the NRTL Program's
  List of Appropriate Test Standards

    In this notice, OSHA also announces the addition of four new test 
standards to the NRTL Program's List of Appropriate Test Standards. 
Table 2, below, lists the test standards that are new to the NRTL 
Program. OSHA has determined that these test standards are appropriate 
test standards and will include them in the NRTL Program's List of 
Appropriate Test Standards.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    OSHA's recognition of any NRTL for a particular test standard is 
limited to equipment or materials for which OSHA standards require 
third-party testing and certification before using them in the 
workplace. Consequently, if a test standard also covers any products 
for which OSHA does not require such testing and certification, a 
NRTL's scope of recognition does not include these products.
    The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) may approve the 
test standards listed above as American National Standards. However, 
for convenience, the use of the designation of the standards developing 
organization for the standard as opposed to the ANSI designation may 
occur. Under the NRTL Program's policy (see OSHA Instruction CPL 1-0.3, 
Appendix C, paragraph XIV), any NRTL recognized for a particular test 
standard may use either the proprietary version of the test standard or 
the ANSI version of that standard. Contact ANSI to determine whether a 
test standard is currently ANSI-approved.

A. Conditions

    In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, 
FM must abide by the following conditions of the recognition:
    1. FM must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any 
change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major 
change in its operations as a NRTL, and provide details of the 
change(s);
    2. FM must meet all the terms of recognition and comply with all 
OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and
    3. FM must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, 
including all previously published conditions on FM's scope of 
recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition.
    Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby expands the 
scope of recognition of FM, subject to the limitation and conditions 
specified above.
